  1. Do you stock 8″ Hot Shots in size 12 EE ?

    1. We only stock 10″ Hot Shots but can build you an 8″.

  2. Are your Hotshot boots insulated and are they waterproof?

    1. Hello Stewart,
      We can insulate them with 200 or 400 gram thinsulate. Also, our boots are water resistant but not water proof, so if they are submerged they will get your feet wet.

  3. Is it possible to have these made to accept a full length zipper like your station boots and still be NFPA certified as wildland boots

    1. Nic,

      Sorry for the late reply here. You would buy the NFPA certified boot, and we would include the zippers separately. We don’t certify this boot with the zipper, but we have certified the Station Boot with zipper. Does this help?
